Is there such a thing as a best 5-wood? Or is it just a matter of opinions? I think the latter.

All 5 woods will perform pretty much the same. If you like your 917F3, I would start out trying an F2 5 wood with the same shaft. It will be the most like your 3 wood, in looks and feel, but it should be easier to hit off the deck.
i have been looking at the F2 to start however don't want to limit my options... some 5 woods look very closed and upright so i doubt they all perform pretty much the same.

If you’re worried about a closed face angle, you could consider a higher lofted adjustable club and turn the loft down, which opens the face angle.

V steel is the best fairway woods ever made.  Not the longest, but the best blend of playability off the deck and tee.

Don't worry about all the newer stuff. The best 5 wood ever made was the Taylormade V-steel. 18 degrees.

Yes, VSteel 5W is GOAT. I used to have it as my driver when, I was a kid just starting out. If I were to pick the all time greatest 5 Woods, I would say: 1. VSteel, 2. Ping K15, 3. TEE XCG5, 4. Ping G25 4wood, 5. Adams T2L Ti.

But for Cliffhanger’s use, just match the set with a used 910 5W. It was the last year they made them in lefty.

I bought into the WRX hype and ordered a f6 baffler and play it at 17.5* a few months all...  I suspect it'll be in the bag for a long while

TEE fairways are reliably neutral in my experience.  Pick the head shape you like, and the Ti face ones are all hot with med/low spin.  

Callaway's recent Pro models play a bit open and launch with low spin when paired with a good shaft.

aeroburner 5 wood..... Forgiving and loooooooong.  I got it for $30 too.  I don't think you'll find a better combo of performance and price.

You’re correct...... it’s ALL a matter of opinion and “what I’m bagging”, .

I came over from a 915 F and prefer the feel and sound of the JPX 900 fairway. Speeder shaft is awesome that comes standard.

I would give Callaway Steelhead a shot. They feel solid and forgiving! :)

I've been in the market for a 5 wood, and I made the mistake of only looking at the new models. None of them really fit my eye how I wanted. I started digging. XHot, X2Hot, XR(16). I ended up with an 18* GBB Alpha 815.
